Waiting for the breeze to fill in

The US multihull Alacrity skippered by Rex Conn and co-skippered by Etienne Giroire is within three miles of the Shetland Round Britain finish line.

Light winds have been dogging the fleet over the last few days: a complete contrast to the gales at the start of the race.

Officials at the Royal Western Yacht Club, Plymouth are expecting to celebrate the winner within the next few hours.
